I helped a crabber friend pull traps when his shoulder was fouled up and cut the hardheads we caught in half and stuffed em back in the bait well. The crabs ate everything but the bones. Some guys I used to snook fish with used big hardheads to catch jewfish back when it was legal and I've got friends that swear they're good for cobia but I've never tried them.

Hammers will eat hardheads, along with big bulls...and so will big cobia.

Do the reds and Cobia eat whole hard heads or cutbait?

When I said bulls since you talking sharks, I meant bull shark.
Cobia will eat small whole hardheads...the bigger the cobe, the bigger that catfish he can eat. Cut the fins off the catfish, though.
